Kate Middleton, 39, joined the Royal Family in 2011 when she tied the knot with Prince William, 38, at Westminster Abbey. The Duke had proposed to the Duchess a year previous while on holiday in Kenya.
For the wedding, the Duchess wore a custom Alexander McQueen dress which featured handmade lace.
Fast forward 12 years and the couple now have three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
The couple are working members of the Royal Family and will regularly attend engagements and events.
The Duchess even makes appearances on behalf of the Queen.
Although the royals have been appearing virtually throughout the pandemic, they recently restarted their in-person visits.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, body language expert Judi James explained that the couple have looked stronger in recent outings.
Kate and William kickstarted their in-person visits just days after Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah aired.
Judi said: “Nothing unites teams or couples more effectively than an ‘attack’ or challenge from outside the relationship.

“William and Kate are a working team of two as well as having a very tight relationship as a married couple but even those bonds have looked even stronger recently in the fall-out of the Oprah interview.
“The Cambridges have always had a trait of mirroring one another and this mimicry or postural echo has suggested like-minded thinking and shared goals and objectives.
“They look as in agreement over their royal status and destiny as they do over their parenting and their relationship as a couple.”
The expert added that their mirroring actions have become more prominent in recent outings.
Kate and William will regularly sit in the same position or stand next to one another in the same position.
Judi said: “Their mirroring also defines a very evenly-balanced relationship in terms of status.
“William and Kate are either adopting almost identical poses to signal equality or they are taking it in turns to look supportive or more dominant.
“During recent outings this mirroring seems to have become even more pronounced than usual.
“William and Kate have been sitting in similar poses and using matching hand gestures when they are speaking or walking side by side.
“When we can see eye-glances being exchanged there is a feeling that they are gaining strength from one another and William has been caught throwing a very fond and admiring look at his wife as she speaks, suggesting he is proud of the way she is handling the new pressure.”
The first outing after the Oprah interview aired was to a School 21 in London to celebrate the return of children heading back to school after the third UK lockdown.
While on the visit, William was asked if he had spoken to his brother Harry.
Judi added: “When William was asked those questions recently about speaking to his brother it looked telling that he used Kate as his excuse for walking off, veering across towards her and placing one steering and protective-looking arm out to move her on and away from the press.
“Once he had ‘checked in’ with his wife though, he appeared to feel more comfortable about replying to the questions that he clearly felt very strongly about.”
